Autumn leaves: Engaku-ji

Autumn leaves: Engaku-ji

The discolored and faded leaves of the Sakura tree are quietly waiting for the moment of fluttering in a wintry blast.

Soon, on the chilly ground, these leaves will begin to be decomposed by microorganisms in the soil and change into precious nutriment for the lively rebirth and blooming in next spring.

The hidden wisdom of nature, which has been inherited from the far distant past, manifests itself stealthily in the unceasing passage of the seasons.
